Travel Guide

High-flying roller coasters, award-winning golf courses, casinos and live music await in this small town in the state of Nevada.

The city of Primm is small in size but big in entertainment. Experience the non-stop fun of a Nevada casino and play a round of golf at an award-winning course. Attend concerts by world-famous musicians and browse for bargains at the retail outlets of a large shopping mall. Primm sits on the Nevada-California state border and is a popular destination for visitors seeking a quieter alternative to nearby Las Vegas.

At the heart of Primm is its collection of three casinos. Visit Whiskey Pete’s Hotel and Casino, built on the site of a former gas station that was owned by a whiskey bootlegger. Try your hand on the slot machines, roulette and blackjack tables. Check out the bullet-ridden car that notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde were driving at the time of their death.

Find family entertainment at the Buffalo Bill’s Resort and Casino. Ride the Desperado roller coaster, which has a 209-foot (64-meter) drop and reaches speeds of almost 80 miles per hour (129 kilometers per hour). Get soaked on a log flume or experience weightlessness on a drop tower ride. Enjoy live music by big name artists at the 6,500-seat Star of the Desert Arena. Previous performers include B.B. King and Dolly Parton.

Besides its casinos, Primm also offers a range of sporting attractions. Primm Valley Golf Club is home to the two scenic and challenging deserts and lakes 18-hole courses designed by famed golf course architect Tom Fazio. Go to Ivanpah Dry Lake to try land sailing. Watch annual off-road racing events, such as the Primm Terrible’s 300 and 250. Alternatively, be a cowboy for a day at the Sandy Valley Ranch.

Don’t miss a visit to the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. Explore over 100 retail outlets for discounted clothing, accessories, footwear, home furnishings and more.

Primm is a 45-minute drive south of Las Vegas. A convenient way to reach the city is to fly to Las Vegas International Airport and then rent a car. Primm’s casinos offer free parking. Use the monorail that travels between these entertainment centers and the outlet mall.
